Today's trivia question.

What album was released on February, Friday the 13th in 1970?

Great, great album. There was nothing like this when it came out. A true original.

Close. Auqalung is an excellent album.
And in a 7 degrees of seperation to Black Sabbath.
Here's Tony Iommi playing in Jethro Tull.

Prior to their first album, Black Sabbath was known as Earth. Not nearly as cool a name, eh? Their first single "Evil Woman" may have been also released under the "Earth" name as well, I'm not sure...

I think it was Black Sabbath's 1st, I actually bought it, but remember the date because it ties in with the great Fillmore show.

Certainly a ground breaking album/group, set up a whole new genre...
I wonder if there was a larger, "underground" scene for that music, and they were the ones who got the contract? Or if they were totally unique?

Anyone know?

Deep Purple In Rock was THE album. First album I bought. Black Sabbath were regarded as the poor man's Deep Purple in those days.

I hate to tell you this, but the IQ of your average Sabbath fan hasn't really gone up too much over the years.
This pretty well covers their entire demographic.

There were other bands doing the rounds inspired by the 'blues boom' here which was morphing out of 12 bar and into riffs (Cream's 'Politician' and F. Mac's 'Oh Well' for example). When I saw the Sabs in '69 they were supported by a band called Bram Stoker, and at the time I thought they were the better of the two. It always surprised me that Groundhogs weren't bigger - just goes to show I would never have made a career in the music industry.

Oh yeah, and what about Stray ? Excellent band.

what may have killed the Groundhogs was MacPhee's voice...although an excellent guitarist with some unusual lyrical ideas (also, have always liked those trio formats)

these days, my kids and their friends listen to some of the cuts off Thank JC For The Bomb (Soldier, Garden, Eccentric Man)

my brother and i used to tune into a Toronto FM station late Sunday nights to capture the BBC Sessions on a shitty reel to reel...Pink Floyd (Echoes), Wishbone Ash (Phoenix), Groundhogs (Split parts 1 & 2, Cherry Red) are some of the ones that stand out in memory

great to see those sessions released on cd over the years (those r>r tapes are long gone!)

Mcphee still tours in those horrible 'here's 3 bands from the same era' evenings where the band members usually have extremely tenuous connections to the originals. I don't go myself but I have been told that he usually steals the show.
